It was a heartbreaker when the Virginia Festival of the Book decided to cancel for 2020; it’s such a fine festival, the organizers work so hard, the community is terrific, and who can beat Charlottesville for a beautiful and hospitable venue? But despite that disappointment, what a thrill to see how quickly the organizers jumped into plans for virtual events with authors originally planned for those in-person festivities.
The Shelf Life programming began April 21, with virtual lunchtime events each Tuesday and Thursday. And I’m pleased to be part of the schedule for June—joining fellow mystery writer Ellen Crosby on Tuesday, June 9, at noon EDT.
